"Take Me to the Heaven I Know"

As I continue to try an figure out how my tastes in music have drifted so far away from Hip Hop toward EDM, it's songs like the one below that shed some light on why. EDM as a whole has introduced me to so many new vocalists that it's becoming an added incentive to stay up on new releases. I don't need to go into the laundry list of talented singers that The Chainsmokers have introduced me to over the past two years, but they're not the only ones who have opened the door to new talent.

Enter Nicky Romero who I associate with a mostly progressive house vibe, but this week decided to bring Colton Avery into the mix on Take Me. Here's a taste of Colton's music featuring Danny O'Donoghue and Mark Sheehan from The Script - The Weatherman. What's interesting about the song below is the Newgrass sound it takes on when you combine the guitar lead in and soulful vocals. There's a folk undertone that I really dig and it gets even more interesting when those vocals are layered over a melodic chord progression post drop. Definitely one of the more interesting contributions I've heard in a while, which is why it was quickly added to GWDJ Favorites...#TakeMe
